I inadvertently posted this as a reply to an earlier subject, and there was no response, so I'm posting this as a new problem.
I've been using Autosketch for years ( in the 1980's), but I have found that the recent drawings have printed half size in one dimension. I assumed that the problem was scaling of some sort, but when I printed a drawing from a file that printed successfully in 2012, it too was similarly shrunk in the y direction. I have changed my printer within the last 6 months from an HP1300 all-in-one to an HP4480 and then an HP2510. Is this a print driver problem? Or is it possible to have x and y axes at different scales?
What's the solution?
Sounds like an issue with the printer driver. Wonder if an email to a sopport person would get you anywhere?
A quick and dirty solution might be to 'print to pdf' (PDF Creator, say) and physically print the PDF out.
You can sorta skew an object by bastardising the isometric 3D tool. Note that your object(s) must be orientated so the skew occurs vertically - play with the tool, you'll quickly see what I mean.
VIEW > TOOLBAR > 3D EFFECTS
Select your objects and press one of the three buttons that become available on that toolbar. Click somewhere on your page for the skew to occur.
I don't ever skew things (I rotate lines manually) so have never needed such a tool.
